The Death of Print Porn

Timothy Kincaid

May 12th, 2009

Boy Culture has an interesting article about the end of an era, the softcore gay porno mags. Specifically, Mavety Media Group is ceasing publication of their gay magazines.

The titles affected include Mandate, Torso, Honcho, Inches (and all of its ethnic permutations) and Playguy. The oldest, Mandate, has been continuously published since April of 1975—just over 34 years.

I’m sure other titles and other publishers will follow. The era when print media in all forms defined our lives is coming to an end.

I hope this doesn’t mean the end of Freshmen as well. It would be nice if the issues I have became collector’s items, although it would be hard to part with them no matter how valuable they became.
